First big announcement of the year is that I’ll be hosting through Synonym, an event called A Night of Active Dialogue.
The idea spawned in part because of work we’re already doing with our Active Dialogue project that will continue to be revealed in the coming weeks. This event is the first in a series of activities this year that we’re doing to bring people together, ignite conversations and initiate action.
For one night, we’ll bring together presenters and audiences that include entrepreneurs, visionaries and creative people who like big ideas. We let 3-5 presenters talk about ideas that inform, excite and energize the audiences to keep the conversations over good food and drink before and after. Or you know, make them laugh. Then we keep the conversations going before and after.
We wanted an interdisciplinary bar night that helps people interact and communicate with folks they might not otherwise meet. So we came up with the idea of an event which are parties held at bars, but instead of keg stands and beer pong, we’ll be doing intellectual magic tricks.
You should come, because it’ll be a great opportunity to branch out, meet others and learn lots of new things. The event will take place on April 4, 2009 7-10pm at The Cubby Bear, a bar which is directly across the street from Wrigley Field in Chicago.
Tickets are just $10 and that’s going to make sure we can pay for the meeting space. You’re responsible for whatever food or drink items you want and they have quite the menu apparently.
You can get in touch with me, if you have questions or want to present.
